A whole year has flown by and it is already 2017! I cannot believe how quickly 2016 seemed to go by. Here we are already at January and another review of the ipsy glam bag.
January’s theme is “Metropolis”
“A Day in the Life of a City Babe Coffee? Check. Lip gloss? Check. Taxi fare? Check. Here, everything you need to own the concrete jungle.”
This month’s bag is super cute! The material it is a double layer with pale blue metallic faux leather with small circular cut out pattern on top with a silver solid faux leather below. According to the ipsy website “This silver stunner was inspired by skyscrapers! Wear it uptown, downtown, or wherever you’ll be slaying this month.”
Here is what I got in my bag for January:
clariSEA Instant Glow Lavender Powder Exfoliant 1 oz
Because of this being a loose powder, this exfoliator can be made as intense or as gentle as I want it to be. It is made by adding equal amounts of the salt to my cleanser. If I want to sprinkle in a little more powder I can get a little more exfoliation. It says that it can also be mix with water as well for a stronger scrub.
It is made with two types of salt, Pacific and Himalayan pink sea salt, and it smells like lavender. Pretty interesting, I can’t wait to try it out!
Naked Cosmetics Mica Pigment in Desert Sunset #02 .05 oz/1.5gm
This is such a beautiful vivid loose pigment! It is a gorgeous shimmery champagne shade that has tiny sparkles in it. I am a huge sucker for sparkles!
This product is made with no talc, oils, waxes or fillers. Swatches just don’t even do this eyeshadow justice! It is just so beautiful. I am already in love!!!
Pacifica BLUSHIOUS in Wildrose 3 grams
First off let me add that I am completely NOT complaining about getting this blush because it is absolutely beautiful! Secondly, ipsy thinks that my makeup collection needs lots of liquid eyeliners and coral blushes, because I get one or the other in my glam bag each month. (This is my 6th coral blush from ipsy.)
I love blush and use it every day…I may still need to retake the quiz and let them know that I am all set with blushers for now.
This shade is beautiful and it goes on a little lighter than it looks in the pan. Another great thing about this blush is that Pacifica’s products are all are 100% vegan, gluten- and cruelty-free.
Rimmel London Lip Conditioning Balm by Kate Moss 0.13 oz
You may remember that I have a thing for good lipglosses, chapsticks and lip balms. Of course, I put it on immediately after opening my glam bag. This is a delightful lip balm! Soft, creamy, and moisturizing. My lips feel smoother and healthier while wearing this balm. It has just the faintest sweet scent, not too much at all.
Smashbox Cosmetics Camera Ready BB Cream SPF 35 in Light or Light Medium .25 fl oz / 7.1 ml
So far everything that I have tried from Smashbox has been great! I haven’t used this bb cream yet, but I love bb creams, so I have high hopes for this one.
Formulated without: parabens, sodium lauryl sulfate, phthalates, oil, fragrance & talc
“Sun protection, check. Hydration, check. A glowy finish, check. Add a hint of coverage and this BB checks all of our boxes.”
I love everything that I got in this month’s bag! I am so happy with everything!
